Winnipeg Police announced on Thursday afternoon that human remains found in the RM of Tache last month have been identified as the remains of Thelma Krull, a Winnipeg woman missing since July 2015.

A hunter located the remains on Oct. 27 in a remote location of the municipality, a wooded area near the intersection of Road 52N and Chemin Perrin Road, northwest of Ste Genevieve.

The discovery, first investigated by Steinbach RCMP, grew to include RCMP forensic services and its major crimes unit.

Krull was last seen on July 11, 2015 in the East Kildonan area of Winnipeg, near Valley Gardens, where investigators believe she was involved in a physical altercation and forcibly removed from the area.

Winnipeg Police are again asking anyone living in the Valley Gardens area to report any suspicions or information they may have. Additionally, Winnipeg Police have asked anyone in and around the location in Tache where Krull was located, to report anything suspicious they recall from the summer of 2015.

Members of the Winnipeg Police Homicide Unit can be contacted at 204-986-6508 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
